NewCastle gig rescheduled and March Tour News

The Maccabees have accepted an invitation from MTV to headline one of their MTV Brand New for 2012 Showcases at Koko in London on January 24th with nominees Lana Del Ray and Charlie XCX. We have 300 tickets exclusively available for fans of The Maccabees – click here.

This means we have regrettably had to reschedule the Newcastle Academy show to later that week, on January 29th. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause to anyone who has already bought tickets for this show. All tickets for the original date are valid for the new date. If you have bought a ticket for the original date and are now unable to make it please contact your point of purchase for a refund.

We are also excited to announce more UK dates for March 2012 as follows:

3rd - Dublin Academy

4th - Belfast Spring & Airbrake

5th - Edinburgh Picture House
